This is not a question......just information.
I work for a Pharmacuetical Research company and conduct clinical research for "new" drugs on an ongoing basis. Just so you know, there are drugs from large and small pharmacuetical companies that are tested everyday, that never end up on the market. Some of the drugs that are tested are for certain indications (diseases or disorders) and others are drugs that are created for a certain indication but are being tested to help treat other indications. Again, alot of these drugs never make it to market, even if we see results in the studies.
The FDA and the IRB's (Investigational Reveiew Boards) are in place for a reason. They are in place primarily for Patient Safety. We have to have both of these organizations in order for any drug to go to market. There are countless studies that are run on marketed drugs, and just because a drug is not approved for one certain thing that does not mean that it cannot be used for it.
In my opinion, and again it's just my opinion, if HCG helps someone that is struggling to lose weight get the results they are looking for, I say go for it. I personally researched it and read an Investigators Brochure (a brochure that states all facts about the drug, including side effects, composition, studies conducted and their outcomes) about HCG and didnt see data that supported the claim of weight loss, but that doesnt mean that it doesnt happen for some individuals. Basically, what it means is that there just hasnt been enough studies conducted to support the claims.
Anyway.....Good Luck to anyone who does try it and remember, if this doesnt work then eventually you will find something that does. Nothing can substitute a healthy lifestyle.
